    It is my first time to see the verb "meet" used with "class". It was so strange for me. I also couldn't find its definition regarding "class" on any dictionaries.
    Could you please help me?
    What does "meet" mean in the example? Maybe, it means "meet requirements".
    So interested in learning English.

    You have misread/mistyped the question. In your link, it clearly shows that the first word is "When", not "What". The question makes perfect sense with the correct first word.

    In this context, it simply means "happen". "The class" refers to the group of people taking part in that class. What time do the people in the class meet?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
